Victorian Silver Micro Mosaic Ring Butterfly

Made up of tiny rods of glass called tessera, micro-mosaics are just tiny forms of an art which has existed for millennia. The earliest examples date back to the second half of the 3rd century BC and were done with bits of stone, shells and ivory. Here’s a wonderful example that you can wear around on your finger. A bright little butterfly who will stay with you all day.
